The state of South Carolina is roughly triangular in shape and is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean, North Carolina, and Georgia. South Carolina includes portions of three major natural regions of the eastern United States: the Coastal Plain, the Piedmont Plateau, and the Blue Ridge Mountains. The Coastal Plain occupies about two-thirds of the state and rises gently to 500 feet from the Atlantic Ocean up to the Piedmont Plateau. Included in the Coastal Plain are the Sea Islands of the coast of South Carolina. The Piedmont is an upland area that rises gradually from 400 feet to 1200 feet along the northwestern edge. The Piedmont is separated from the Coastal Plain by a major fall line. The Blue Ridge Mountains, in the northwestern corner of South Carolina, meets the Piedmont. It is a mountainous and mainly forested region. The further east one moves, the flatter the land becomes in South Carolina.
All of the major rivers in South Carolina flow generally southeastward across the state to the Atlantic Ocean. The three major rivers are the Santee, Great Pee Dee, and Savannah. There are no large natural lakes in South Carolina, but several have been created for hydroelectric power purposes. The three largest lakes are Lake Marion - 110,600 acres, Lake Moultrie - 60,400 acres, and Lake Murray - 50,000 acres.
South Carolina's coastline extends 187 miles. However, if all bays, inlets, and islands are considered the coastline measures 2,876 miles, which is the 11th longest among the 50 states. The northeast section of the coast has few islands, but south of Winyah Bay the coast is dotted with sea islands and bays.
